About La Jolla

Located along the western edge of the north coastal region of the City of San Diego, on Interstate 5, south of the community of Pacific Beach and west toward the Pacific Ocean. The northern-most portion is home to the Scripps Institute of Oceanography.

Physically, the community is defined by its rugged coastline of ocean bluffs and beaches blended with steep canyons and hillsides. Up to the mid-20th century, it was distinguished by small, single-family summer cottages, located along the coastline. Infused within the community, known as the Village, it includes the area within the boundary of Prospect Street, Girard Avenue and Torrey Pines Road.

The first comprehensive plan for the community was created by Charles Eliot, in 1946. The plan focused on conserving it as a resort and to preserve features that attracted visitors and residents to enjoy the area and its spectacular natural surroundings. Since then, the area has experienced substantial growth and land development resulting in the community currently being 99 percent built out. In 1967, the first Community Plan was adopted. That plan proposed broad goals and guidelines for development and set the framework for the precise plans of the area and the Fay Avenue Extension.....jump to modern days and you will find some of the most sought after real estate in the world.

This area, (8200 Camino del Oro) approximately one mile long, is characterized by a beautiful sandy beach and its affluent residential area. The gentle waves on this beach make this an ideal area for novice scuba classes.

Located behind the main lifeguard station is, Kellogg Park, a grassy area, ideal for a nice picnic or barbeque. It also has the only beachfront boat launch within the city limits. Small vessels can launch directly into the Pacific Ocean at the foot of Avenida de la Playa, located approximately 300 yards south of the lifeguard station.
